I purchased this red epidendrum from eBay (vector: nia22d — Nia’s Orchids) and received it on March 28th. It had a small spike that didn’t survive the shipping, and I watched it for some time. After reading on the internet about these reed-stem epidendrums, I cut off the stem that contained the spike. It is now very happy and growing like crazy. I hope another spike comes.
It looks to be an intermediate-temperature grower, which needs plenty of light. Many people grow these in their gardens, or in containers outside.
I have no idea of the colors of these plants, as I have not had this one bloom. Red!
